Description1950 Bowman Jackie Robinson #22 PSA Mint 9 - None Higher. Many other athletes in the Negro Leagues displayed immense talent. It was Jack Robinson's character and maturity off the field that made him the perfect candidate to break Major League Baseball's color barrier in 1947. Many doubts about the choice were put to rest when Robinson won the NL ROY award and, as the back of this card mentions, Jackie won the league's MVP award just two seasons later in 1949, in which he hit a league leading .342 and finished second in the NL with 124 RBIs.
Graded PSA Mint 9. One of twelve cards graded MINT with none rated higher. Arguably one of the finer trading card portraits of this true baseball hero can be found on his 1950 Bowman card. Our offered example happens to be in near-pristine form. Surfaces are clean, hues are vivid and registration is precise resulting is a finely detailed portrait. A popular card that stays in private collections for a long time.
Guide Value or Estimate: $80,000 - up.
Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
